(1) For the purposes of Title 13, chapter 37, MCA, and these rules, an in-kind expenditure shall be reported as follows:
(a) A candidate or political committee shall report an in-kind expenditure on the appropriate reporting schedule and, in addition to the reporting requirements specified in ARM 44.10.531, shall identify it as to its nature.
(b) The value of an in-kind expenditure shall be determined as follows:
(i) It shall be reported at its fair market value at the time of the expenditure; or
(ii) It shall be reported at the difference between the fair market value at the time of the expenditure and the amount charged the expendee; or
(iii) It shall be reported at the actual monetary value or worth at the time of the expenditure; or
(iv) If due to extraordinary circumstances none of these provisions would be appropriate or no reasonable fair market value can be established, it shall be sufficient to report a precise description of such in-kind expenditure as made.
(c) Fair market value shall be the retail price of such services, property, or rights in the market from which it ordinarily would have been purchased by the expendee at the time of its expenditure.
